This adorable hat has just a little bit of whismy and a whole lot of fun! Now, depending on your color choices, it could be turtles or ladybugs or any number of things-- check with the recipient if you want. There's lots here to amuse the crafter, since the 'turtle' shapes are appliqued on afterwards and the eyes sewn on. This is one of those great pieces that helps you pick out your child in a crowd-- say at a mall or a fair. Just the thing for the young and playful.
